Director Roland Emmerich planning two 'Independence Day' sequels

Posted on

Director Roland Emmerich told MTV news that he’s planning two sequels to his 1996 blockbuster Independence Day. “What we want to do in the next—it’s actually two movies—we want to do a bigger arc,” he told MTV. “Independence Day was always like the king who leads his troops into battle against an evil force, and that stays like that.” Though there’s no script yet, there is a title he had in mind: ID4-ever. He also said he expected Independence Day star Will Smith will be involved when the time comes.
